scroller - on the move worldwide since 2005

In 2005 we changed our lifestyle and became full-time travelers ever since.
In different mobile homes we rolled through North Africa, South America, Russia, Mongolia, China,
Southeast Asia, New Zealand, Australia, Southern Africa and North America.

The future: We remain nomadic and let every day take us by surprise. 

We hope that all of you have fun in virtually traveling with us.

Carnival parade in the Mexican La Paz

Carnival is also celebrated in Mexico and on the boardwalk Malecon La Paz three parades are taking place in the evenings during this time. But the music bands are much smaller than the ones in Switzerland and they play Mexican music without any fault. They don’t march along on the streets, but rather play at fixed spots or they join the parade on huge semi-trailers.
For us gringos many of the presented, local topics on the parade vehicles were alien. Only the many beauty queens of the surrounding village, dressed in glamorous dresses, waving from their vehicles impressed even us. Some of the ladies

Meeting with Fabrice in La Paz and at Tecolote Beach

We met Fabrice and his family for the second time now at the campsite in La Paz. We decided to spend some days together at Tecolote Beach.Here, for the first time, he off-loaded his Zodiac rubber boat with a 25 PS outboard motor which he had carried along for several months. The ride to Isla Espiritu was a bit rough, due to the white crest waves, but we made it. My short fishing attempt from the boat was rather unsuccessful. No fish and my well filled bait box went overboard While I was handling my fishing rod.
I hope it was not swallowed by some fish.

Together with the Swiss couple Vreni and Fredi we spend three days at Tecolote Beach close to La Paz. During the day the bay was crowded by locals.
A Mexican drove with his 4x4 up to the water’s edge and somehow

Crayfish in Mexico

At the first beach we drove to in Mexico we were offered freshly caught crayfish. We cooked the spiky crustaceans in a large pot in salt water for 30 minutes. A feast!

our campsite at Alabama Hills our campsite at Alabama Hills

Alabama Hills, California

The "Alabama Hills Recreation Lands" are situated close to the village Lone Pine at the foot of Mount Whitney, the second highest mountain of the United States, at the edge of the Sierra Nevada. Unbelivable impressive landscapes! The rock formations are beautiful and one is free to climb up and around everywhere. We were caught up for ten days at this amazing piece of land.
The museum of Western Film History in Lone Pine is worth a visit. It demonstrates the history of the 400 western movies shot since 1920.

Bryce Canyon National ParkBryce Canyon National Park

Page and Lake Powell

Hordes of American Tourists with own vehicles, but also uncountable international guests with hired cars.  

On the Glen Canyon steel-arch bridge you cross the Colorado River and the retaining wall of Lake Powell. Most activities  take place in the turquois water. The two impressive marinas hold hundreds of medium sized and large speed and home boats. The 299 km long barrier lake which stretches over the area of Arizona and Utah one can find numerous recreation areas.
A lot of locals visit of these in their gigantic mobile homes carrying along a second vehicle, mostly SUV or a trailer with a motorboat, motorbike or beach buggy. With these they then paint the sand beaches, the dunes or water surface red. Generators are allowed from 6 am to 10 pm. These hours the Ami’s need indeed to run the their up to three aircons per vehicle. And of course, the television is on from early in the morning till late at night.

Lonely Rock Beach

Due to the strong winds we did not stay directly on the sand shores of Lake Powell, but preferred the higher terrace 250 meters inland. Undisturbed vistas over the shrub landscape onto Lonely Rock in the lake waters.  We enjoyed our sundowner. 

Four young Asians set up camp behind us. And the inevitable happened.

Island in the Sky National Park with solar eclipse

On arrival we were astounded by the amount of busses with uncountable tourists. Numerous rangers granted the tourists to look through very dark sun glasses into the sun. Only then did we realise that today the solar eclipse hysteria ruled.
We enjoyed ourselves just watching the behaviour of the international tourists. Mostly lean Asians, of which some were loud Chinese and some more quiet Japanese. The local Americans of which the majority was not so lean and of which some women were wearing hot pants more suitable for elephants. After all the fuss was over the very busy tourists rushed off to the next highlight. 

We were even more impressed by the amazing nature when it became quiet.

Lockhart, the barbeque capital of Texas

The restaurant Cross Market is described as one of the best barbeque venues in Texas. We were hungry and wanted to find out. Luckily, we did not visit during the main eating hours – apparently the queues of the hungry get very long then. Even before we got there Brigitte was laughing about me as she knows about my dislike for eating hot food with only the hands and no cutlery. I already have problems with the burgers here. 

The really superbly prepared meat is served on a small piece of fat resistant paper and is charged by weight. No sauces, no cutlery, and so you sit as a little cannibal in front of a mountain of meat, not looking really appetizing. So, no restraint of fatty fingers – just enjoy.

The pieces of meat were really prepared perfectly. Nevertheless, for the next two days I stuck to the motto: nothing fatty anymore.
